Flynn Wins NRCA Gold Circle Award

We are proud to share that Flynn Southwest Denver won the NRCA’s Gold Circle Award for Innovative Solutions: New Construction; and honorable mention for Outstanding Workmanship: Steep Slope for our work on the University of Denver’s Daniel Felix Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science!

Our scope of work included designing the diamond-like shingles for the dome, standing-seam copper roof panels, and copper diamond and flat-seam wall panels.

Flynn was presented with the challenge of designing the diamond-like shingles for the done, including the complicated task of calculating the shingles to fall within the tolerances left behind by all other trades who had already completed the framing stages. Each row of the diamond-like shingles needed to be carefully calculated in order to maintain the flowing lines and appearance. Flynn overcame the inconsistencies by designing the shingles with an interlocking system in which each shingle could be adjusted in order to maintain the concentric lines which give the done its signature look.

Flynn Wins Gold Award from VRCA

Flynn received the Gold Award in the Director’s Trade category for our work on the Coast Capital Savings (CCS) Building in Vancouver. The award was presented at the Vancouver Regional Construction Association Awards of Excellence. Congratulations to everyone who took part in this monumental project and win!

About the winning project:

In collaboration with General Contractor Ledcor, Coast Capital Savings was a design-assist project that included roofing, glazing, and metals.

The complexity of this project required innovative thinking from the start. With both positive and negative slopes, vents were designed to work both with and against gravity. With opposing slopes coming together at 90-degree angles, sealed glazing units had to be reversed depending on the slope direction.
